law school graduates, romney also was a harvard mba, will square off and try to tell americans that they're very relatable. [laughter] we'll look forward to that. all right, chris, thank you. >> thank you. megyn: well, these debates, i mean, they're great theater for the american public, and they really do help a lot of americans decide whether it's just a visceral reaction or i like that guy better, they help americans decide. and a lot of the times it's the gaffes that turn people against the candidates. these campaigns, they're searching for the one defining moment, but of course they're also hoping it won't be an awkward one that sinks their campaign. recall 1992 when president george h.w. bush checks his watch during a debate with then-candidate bill clinton. the gesture gave voters the impression that he was impatient and uninterested. during the 2000 presidential debates, al gore got up in governor george w. bush's grill. look. [laughter] just a classic moment where he was invading his personal space a little, and, boy, did he take some flak. mr. bush gave him a nod and
lawsuits pending that could negate some of the new laws that are intended to require photo ids for voters? >> first observation is, in terms of the case in maryland, that was one misguided example. never should have happened. the race was not that close. it was a huge mistake by that individual and he paid for it with a time in prison. in terms of your concerns about voter i.d., and having to show id, i live in virginia and just got my voter card. they allow any kind of thing, a utility bill, or anything like that. it is a lot easier to vote then to get on an airplane. if you are worried about fraud, i think that these are reasonable requirements. >> in terms of polling, to the extent that both firms can, we try to pull a registered voter list. registered voters who have presumably -- i mean, we try to sample who have not only registered -- people who have not only registered but voted in the last election. >> in a lot of states, they have to have a photo id. how do you account for that? >> our callers asked you to show them your folder id -- your photo i.d. >> not a lot that you can do.
beaten to death. was written cabin" very much as a protest novel to the fugitive a state law or anyone in the north, including new england, with the abolitionists and -- if anyone in the northwest to aid or abet a fugitive slave, they themselves would be imprisoned or fine for breaking the law. this was seen as a compromise between the north and south to avoid war. that was part of what the novel was trying to do, to say, listen, i am a person, harriet beecher stowe, and i'm against slavery, as was much of new england, and i just my right to call a slave who finds him or herself -- t.s. my right to help the slave who finds him or herself within our borders. >> more about it. beecher stowe this weekend as -- or about. beecher stowe this weekend as we look behind the history and literary history of augusta, maine. sunday at 5:00 p.m. on american history tv on c-span3. >> almost 20 years ago, we broadcast one of the most controversial stories in our 44 years on the air. it was called "yes, but is it art?" at was accused of being a philistines, someone without the ability to appreciate con
're looking at is a more diverse group of people in terms of education, business, law, even humanity, to some extent. we are looking at a broader generations. we are looking at people, we were talking about xi. he has some enormous experience, my those leaders from all over the world visiting his city. i think we are looking at people experienced in the world. when we look back in history, i expect we will say there was a surge of reform in 1992 after tiananmen. that china was pushed into the world, wto, explosive growth. we will look at hu jintao as a time of consolidation and i look to the next group to push and tackle for the first time the political question. because china's society has changed. it has less dominant leaders. it has a more pluralized society. and has resources scattered among social organizations, corporations that have their own independent power. i think we are going to see a new push. i do not know how vigorous but in the political direction, we will have more cosmopolitan leaders compared to the past. >> for someone to rise to the top of the chinese hierarchy, would gi
of states like in wisconsin and probably in pennsylvania you're having voter i.d. laws which is probably one of the most common form of voter suppression put in place. then the courts are blocking it. in south carolina, in texas doj has been blocking a lot of the efforts and so there is a sort of like two steps backwards one step forward process going on here. where a lot of states are trying to make voting laws worse but we're seeing a pushback from the courts and the department of justice. >> bill: okay. but it has been -- over 20 where there have been attempts, right? >> that's right. they're very calm and they take very different forms. >> bill: i was going to get to that. let's talk about some of the forms. what is the most common form? voter i.d.? >> probably the most common is voter i.d. this is a kind of bait and switch. the way that voter i.d. works is it is sort of intuitive to people that you should show i.d. to prove you are who you are at the polls. people are worried about voter fraud. a lot o
laws, the ban on the xl pipeline, the enforcement of labor laws -- those policies have killed thousands and thousands of jobs and collectively, we are making it incredibly difficult for small businesses to drive, much less -- thrive, much less survive. >> so if you have 65% of spending going to individual payments, what would you do to try to reduce that? >> in order to create more jobs, we have to control the national debt. i think that is what we have to do. i have said it from the beginning. i have given a plan to try to deal with it. this idea that somehow mr. cruz is lecturing us on standing on our own feet, i find incredible. he spent most of your adult life working for the government. you have not created jobs. you have not on your own business. i have. my wife and i own a retail store. we did not have the federal government with their boots on our neck. when george bush was president, we lost 700,000 jobs per month. all these programs were in place at the time. the only addition is the health care act, which has not been fully implemented. i think that you have a selective memor
spying. you have the law of the land in the united states. for the chinese, it is an attractive alternative. when you are on the other side of the trade and you know your competitor or the person you buy something from us under pressure financially, you should hold the card and send a card. so you just don't want to get to a point where the chinese say, look, we will do this, but we want much higher interest rates. so that is when race could spike, really impact the economy, be much costlier for average folks because rates will follow suit and will see a spiraling out of control now. so that is why you just don't want to have some other player having cars like that. in addition, you need economic growth in terms of raising revenue before this country. we are seeing growth contracts. that's okay, but it's just okay. it is not where we should meet in this kind of recovery, at this moment in the recovery based on typical recovery. next year as a result of going over the fiscal cliff and that of course is the expiration of the tax cuts to the spending programs for the most economist
of six best legislators. every single law was passed in a bipartisan manner, with a republican governor, republican senate, democratic house. i have always worked together in a bipartisan manner. that is the value of my record. when you are looking at these two candidates, this is a person who has never been elected to anything. mr. cruz. i have a record you can look at. bipartisan record that you can look at. >> this election is a clear choice between the obama democrats, more spending, more debt, more government control, and going back to our founding freedoms. >> we need to get out of here. because we are out of time. thank you as always. >> thank you and thank you to both candidates. we want to leave you with a final note -- early voting begins oct. 22. just three weeks from now. the election is november 6. that does it for the belo debate from victory park in dallas. for all of us, have a good night, everybody. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> see the debate tomorrow night, and watch and engage. comi
by that is one of the reasons many of these voter i.d. laws were passed is they did not understand the implications on the state level. so many people were outraged with the trayvon martin killing, but the district attorney decided not to press charges was elected. most of the issues that affect people every day our local issues, but i believe that national organizations put so much emphasis on the top of the ticket they are ignoring vital state, gubernatorial, state, county commissioner, all those down-ballot races, and when you are talking about the military- industrial complex, those are district attorney's charging people, judge-citizens charging people, so speak to how you are educating your constituents to understand down-ballot races matter, and even more so, then the top of the ticket? >> it is also different states. if you complained about extremism in the republican party or the support by minorities of the democratic party, you self-gerrymander the country, counties, and districts. what is transpiring is you can make sure you -- but you are giving up on south carolina. t
law reviews and look at what is being written. i look at some of the legal blogs on a pretty routine basis. pretty much every day, i will look at scotus blog, supreme court of the united states. or there is a blog called "how appealing." there are a variety of blogs, written by law professors. some are more conservative and some are more liberal. i will look at those every once in awhile and see what people are saying and thinking and writing about legal issues. i find them interesting and occasionally useful. you know. it is the world i come from, as you know. i am not going to say, i am never going to read the law review article again. >> do you read them before, as you are trying to sort through cases? >> usually only when the briefs point them out. i rarely do an independent search. >> you talked about the role of clerks in sorting through the cert petitions. in recent years, the court has taken many fewer cases than it did in an earlier area. -- earlier era. maybe there are fewer circuits and fewer important issues, but that seems unlikely. do you have a sense of whether the cou
health care law last june. so how might mitt romney change the high court if he becomes president of the united states? he's already giving all of us some major clues. let's bring in cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns who's taking a closer look. what are you seeing? >> the supreme court doesn't get talked about that much on the campaign trail. but choosing a justice is one of the most important things a president does. it's how on administration puts its mark on some of the nation east toughest, most divisive issues. and we have a look at how mitt romney might handle it if he's president. whenever mitt romney fielded questions during the primaries about his picks for the supreme court, he was armed with a stock republican answer. >> what i would look to do would be to appoint people to the supreme court that will follow strictly the constitution as opposed to to legislating from the bench. >> reporter: but he wouldn't choose a favorite. >> would you pick one, please? >> yes, roberts, thomas, alito and scalia. >> reporter: all that changed in june when roberts cast the
opportunity, remember when rush limbaugh said those hateful things about sandra fluke, that georgetown law student, he had a great opportunity to smack down the fanatical fringe. he didn't do it. it was a missed opportunity. doesn't mean romney agrees with the crazy things limbaugh said but he missed an opportunity to assert himself against the fringe and this is an opportunity for romney, if he's got any sense and he's a terribly bright guy, a very decent guy, but he's a bit of a coward where the right wing is concerned. i do hope, it would help romney, but he should stand up in that debate and raise it himself and disavow attacks from five years ago on the president that seem to me to be driven perhaps by race rather than economics. >> we'll see if more does come out in the next half hour or so. again, we'll continue it. gloria borger, paul begala, boyce watkins, eric erickson, thank you very much. 50 million people are expected to watch tomorrow's presidential debate. what president obama and mitt romney say obviously is going to be crucial, but how they say it may matter just as much,
. >> right. >> the law does make that illegal and, therefore, the workers in each case have to make the determination, are they prepared to break the law. >> but just going back to that graph you showed. a huge reason why lockouts are a higher percentage of strikes, there are almost no strikes anymore. >> exactly. >> there was 19 strikes in 2011 and, you know, 12 and 10 before then. we haven't had more than 20 strikes in companies, more than a thousand people for years and years. in the '80s there were hundreds of strikes. unions are getting less powerful. a lot of lockouts is one of the huge issues with every union is pensions. they're portrayed as a time bomb. they are an onerous cost because of health care and other things. and you lock out workers who have a contract that the owner thinks is paying them too much. it's why companies -- it's kind of -- i love covering sports, but when i have to spend so much time on the nfl and no one ever says anything about the american sugar crystal lockout which is going on over a year and people are not making $150,000 which the part-time ref
of on the lays side. i bring my bull whip a little bit. come on, let's go. it might be against the law but i do that too. >> a bull whip and a church fan is not unheard of. that's terrific. i know you're supporting the president. what are your thoughts on the debate this week? >> i like to find out which one of the republicans paid "saturday night live" not to come on live last night. they had a replay. i was hoping to see something more action. "saturday night live" usually brings things into perspective with a little bit better humor. >> you don't like to see a rerun of mick jagger hosting? >> no, not really. >> i would have loved to watch that. >> i want to see romney get up there, man and stop all his lying he's doing. he just lies like a rug. the man just, every other word is a lie. >> give me an example because i don't think he's on the same level of dishonesty as paul ryan. >> barack obama is robbing the. >> social security. >> medication. >> that's a lie. >> what are they planning to do social security to rob people, privatize it. they need to say hey we need to pay that money back to t
on pennsylvania's controversial voter. >> i d. law. it's estimated the law's photo i.d. requirement to exclude 750,000 people from voting. the law upheld by a lower court but the state supreme court ordered the judge to assess whether all eligible voters would be allowed to obtain the allowable forms of i.d. >>> and the jimmy hoffa investigation turns up nothing. waiting for tests on mud and clay examples before declaring it a total dud. a tipster claimed he saw what appeared to be a body buried at the site the say after the teamsters chief disappeared in 1975. >> you can skeptical from the beginning. >> please. me and a million other people, right? >>> and the carmageddon. the freeway back open. it shut down a ten-mile stretch of 405 this weekend. one of busiest highways in the nation. l.a. drivers asked to plan accordingly but there were no major traffic jams. >> that's good news. >>> ah, i know. you're distraught over this. an epic collapse by the u.s. at the 39th ryder cup. the europeans roaring back from a deficit to stage a breathtaking 4 1/2 to 13 1/2 point win. sinking a five-put putt to s

not lie with a man and a woman. then you have to follow all of the laws which means execute gay guys and children who are gluttons or drunks, execute people who work on the sabbath. that's saturday, sorry nascar. execute adulters which includes people who get divorced and remarried. i don't mind being a homophobe. it is a free country. don't hide behind the bible. jesus never said an anti-gay thing in his life. romans is paul talking about romans sexual practices and it is all mistranslated from the original greek. deuteronomy is about male prost tuesday. you don't find anything about consensual relationships between same sex adults in the bible that you can use to justify homophobia. christianity is not cover for bigotry. you want to hate gay people, you're allowed to it. is a free country. don't claim you are being christian. jesus doesn't want you to judge sinners. he never said a damn thing about gay people. i can prove jesus had no problem with gay people as well but we'll do that later in the show mayb

on the ground. the fact that we're very much it seems dealing with this like a law enforcement matter. the fbi goes. they investigate. i think it is pretty clear that the crime scene is not going to be of much use. they view it as a crime scene. i view it as a scene of a terrorist attack won't be much use to them after all this time but the administration seems to be reverting pre-9/11 mentality and trying to construct facts in order to support that approach to terrorism and it is not approach that will keep us safe. martha: you think it is a dangerous posture. liz, thanks so much. >> thanks martha. bill: a lot to talk about this. kt mcfarland will stop by next hour. we will pick her brain. she has three big issues. >>> 30 two days until america votes. exclusive interview with the man at a center of a voter registration fraud scandal in a critical battleground state. how he is now defending himself. we'll have that for. >> in the wake of wednesday night's big debate, democrats calling governor romney a liar. a nasty new turn of the campaign. we'll debate some of this fair and balanced. you dec
